There are moments in every super hero comic or movie when the hero digs deep and finds their inner strength and turn the tides. I want to do a series of stands that will help you capture that moment with your super hero figures. This is the first one I have done. The impact point when the hero rallies after getting their clocks cleaned. The dust settles, there is that look in the hero's eyes that forecast the coming storm.

I could release these one at a time at a low price point or as a group at a higher cost. Not sure what you guys want more on that issue.
But I am open to input. I have two more in the works now but I will be happy to switch over to a better idea.

I have a urban power up with spinning debris, street signs, paper, maybe a hydrant.
And a landing on one knee and fist to the ground, causing a indent with pebbles jumping from the shock wave.

So let me know what you think.

Can you post some promos with the hero figure in it, to get an idea of how you envision the prop being used?

I haven't gotten to that point yet but I will when I am. Someone always getting tossed into or through a wall though so that's the main point of it.

I think it is a great idea, although a bit limited do to the constraints of the size, kinda hard to set a camera up without going outside the borders. maybe some side pieces that curve inwards a bit to allow for different camera angles.

Looks cool, I agree a little wider or maybe something modular where you can add some extra walls on the side to get more camera angles on it.

Can picture all kinds of scenes like this where hulk went on a rampage

You can just take any building prop you have and snug it up to the side and you have more option. But remember this isn't a scene it's a stand for your character. I could do a larger set if this is a hit, It might be fun. Add two buildings on either side and you have one heck of a dead end.
I can add a side wall prop. I just don't want to go to far. Keep it simple so I can keep it at a good price.

I agree with this. I understand these are stands, I just think having them as such limits usage a little. Or keep them as stands, but with an option to extend height and width or something like that. If I do a semi 45 degree angle render, the alternative buildings/props wont really match up to the stand as it just cuts off. My gut feeling is that most people would want to use these in scenes instead of just character stands.

ok, gotcha. i never use "stands", so didn't think in that context. Looks great though.

Good input. And I appreciate it. I think I'll bridge the gap between the stands and sets like the Kill Zone sets I've done. Make a wall prop that can be loaded to either side. I'll see what shakes out and post it.
Again thanks.

I like the idea of the stand...but I also like the idea of more modular pieces that could be fit together.

I really like the way the it can be turned around and used from different angle...great concept!

I do use stands at times but the most useful stuff for me would be modular sets like others have pointed out. Stands are mostly for quick renders to see how character looks with some background. For stands it is important that I can rotate the camera a bit so simple "wall" stands are not quite as good as are those that have a bit more depth.

I love all kinds of kits be it an interior kit to "build your own dungeon" or modular house, or "build your own city" exterior kit. This because I often do a render series where continuity is important (for me) and camera angles may vary.

So here is a side wall which is a prop that can be loaded, or not. I will do another for the left and it will be different and not a mirror in case someone used both at once.
Sound good.?
